Boston's own Jittery Jack brings his own East Coast bang to the world of Rockabilly with his 50's inspired Rock n' Roll! He has headlined numerous times at the Viva Las Vegas festival. He is scheduled to play at the 2015 Viva Las Vegas show. European fans recently got to see this dynamo perform at the Rockabilly Rave in the U.K. 2012 saw the release of "Gone Plum Crazy" on WILD Records from Hollywood, California. His recent album , "Gonna Have A Time with Jittery Jack" was released on Germany's Rhythm Bomb Records this spring. Gotta tell you folks, these are two killer albums from one cool Rockin' cat from the East Coast. I can't wait to see him on stage in person with his wild stage show in September at the New England Shake-Up in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.
